Crystal Palace vs West Ham
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 26 January 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park.
The Glaziers are one of the worst teams in the competition at the moment. In fact, they have won just six times all through this campaign, and their only victory in the past five match-days in the league had come against the dead-last placed Sheffield United.
Going on, they also have been on a worrying stretch at home, and have been conceding goals in plenty lately.
Meanwhile, the Hammers are one of the best in the PL at the moment – courtesy: their long and ongoing winning streak. The team has been scoring goals for fun, and even on the road they have been impressive in match-ups.
Moreover, Roy Hodgson’s men have a great h2h record against this rival over the years as well.
By the looks of things, expect West Ham to be the better team on the pitch this Tuesday.
Crystal Palace vs West Ham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash had ended in a 1-1 draw.
- 11 of the former 13 encounters had goals from both teams.
- Nine of the preceding thirteen meetings had three or more goals.
- Only once have the hosts won at this stadium since 2013.
- It’s been eight years since the home team has kept a clean sheet at this ground.
Crystal Palace vs West Ham Prediction
The Glaziers lost 4-0 on the road the last match-day, against Manchester City. In the meantime, David Moyes’s men won 2-1 at home the past game week, against West Brom.
Going on, Hodgson’s men were winless in eight of their preceding nine overall fixtures, and they had failed to score in five of their last seven matches.
At home, they have won just once since November of 2021 (against the 20th placed Sheffield United), and have won just thrice this whole season here.
On the other hand, their opposite number are on a five-fixture winning run, and they have conceded a total of just one goal from these five games. On the road, they have lost just twice since September, and the defeats had come against Chelsea, and Liverpool.
On top of that, the Hammers also have a good h2h record against this foe over the years, and especially so in recent years at this venue.
Considering these observations, expect West Ham to have the upper hand this Tuesday.
